Discover why #townsvilleshines

In January, Townsville Enterprise launched an integrated marketing campaign to grow awareness of the region, increase Overnight Visitor Expenditure (OVE) and improve the statistics of the Visiting Family and Relatives (VFR) market. The campaign is targeted to Queensland, Sydney and Melbourne markets and includes digital marketing, TV, print, airline partnerships and a local competition.

This campaign activity builds upon the success of 2017 campaign to position Townsville North Queensland as the home of regional Australia’s best live events and where all of Australia’s iconic landscapes meet.
